This week's Torah portion contains some inspiring passages of exhortation to keep the covenant and obey the L-rd, it has a repetition of the Ten Words given at Mount Sinai ... and our foundational declaration, the Shema. You can see the daily Parasha and Bible reading plan for this week and here is the drash for Va'etchanan.
Please pray for the network this week ...
Dan and Patty Juster are speaking at Gateway on Mt. Zion Church this morning. Brit Hadasha have a Women's Gathering this morning for a Brunch by the Pool and there is a Youth Game Night later on. Brit Hadasha have a new Introductory Hebrew Class series beginning on Tuesday evening and Adat Chaim have Young Adults Discipleship on Wednesday evening. On Thursday morning El Shaddai have Women's Bible Study and in the evening Beit Simcha have Bible Study. Dan and Patty Juster are visiting Beth Shalom this Shabbat! Shomair Yisrael have Beginner Worship Practice after the Shabbat morning service and Shoresh David have Torah Study: Discussing the week's parasha at greater depth in the afternoon.
The Bible verse for this week is ...
"For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead." (James 2:26, NASB)
This verse speaks of the necessary partnership of faith and works. This week, let us prayerfully consider whether we have both - faith in G-d and works to demonstrate that faith!
